Thumbprint cookies



I went to a very fun cookie exchange party last night!

I made Thumbprint Cookies (I got the recipe from the Samantha, the American Girl, cookbook) to share and thankfully, I was the only one who made these.

There were 75 ladies there and we also did a white elephant gift exchange. This was hilarious! You get to take from others what you want but people can also take from you. I ended up with a nice handmade scarf. I almost got a Pampered Chef casserole dish but it was a h0t item.

Anyway, I came home with 2 dozen (plus) homemade cookies of various kinds. My favorite so far has been a Cappuccino Crisp! Wow! These taste and smell yummy!

I found the recipe! It was actually in The American Girls party book.
I doubled the recipe when I used it but here's the original:
Jam Tart Cookies (or Thumbprint Cookies)
1/4 C. jam
1 C. butter
1 3/4 C. flour
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350
Spoon jam into a small bowl and stir until smooth.
Cream butter and sugar.
In separate bowl, mix flour, salt.
Add the mixtures until dough is formed.
Roll into 1 inch balls placing them 1 inch apart.
Press thumb into the center and fill with jam.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy!
P.S. Mine seemed to take more than 10 minutes to bake. My mother made these at Christmastime each year :)

Oops! I forgot the sugar! It calls for 1/3 C. sugar :)
